GOP Rep Ralph Abraham Files Resolution to remove Nancy Pelosi from the Speakership of the House.
This could happen. If the Republicans stick together, it would only require 21 Democrats to vote against her and the progressives in the House could muster that many votes if they want them and many don’t believe Pelosi will ever allow a successful impeachment vote.
Her replacement would likely be a very progressive House member. Maybe even AOC. That would make it official as she took over the House from Pelosi a long time ago. If that should happen, I would imagine that Pelosi would immediately resign from congress.
Rep. Ralph Abraham (R-LA) proposed legislation Tuesday to expel House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from her position as Speaker of the House over her “politically-motivated witch-hunt” impeachment inquiry.
Congressman Abraham introduced H. Res. 620, a resolution that, if passed through the House, would remove her as Speaker and expel her from the House of Representatives.
The Louisiana Republican called House Speaker Pelosi’s impeachment inquiry a “vicious crusade” against President Donald Trump, and therefore, Pelosi must be expelled from the House and her role as the leader of the House.
Abraham said in a statement Tuesday:
Nancy Pelosi’s vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped. She has disgraced the people’s House and weaponized the Speaker’s gavel for her party’s political gain. House Democrats spent nearly three years obsessed with election meddling only to dwarf any such efforts with their own deceitful plan to nullify the 2016 election and prevent President Trump from winning in 2020. I have introduced a resolution calling for her to be expelled from the House and for the Speaker’s Office to be vacated.
